Well the AR 15 that I just built (put together) performed flawlessly,,, I love my Red Dot,,,

My friend said that they had to go ahead and start shooting the hogs, the hogs were following the Planter Tractor, a few rows over,,,

They shot into the Hogs 3 differant times during last week, so the hogs were real spooky when I got there Sat. night,,,

I only killed 3,,, A big Sow and 2 Shoats,,, But I still had a blast,,, Good times were had by all,,,

Another great adventure in the books,,,

Thanks,,,

I had to shoot the Sow 3 times, but I admit I shot her 3 times,,,

PDF,,, Purdy Damn Fast,,, lol

The Shoats dropped with the first shot,,,

I did not weigh the meat, but it is sure going to be good and tender,,,

Looking forward to firing up the Ol' Smoker,,,

The Slide stock was here waiting on my when I got home Friday night,,,

No problems attaching it,,, Worked like a Champ,,,

I was amazed at the fact that you can put 30 rounds in a target in about 3 seconds,,, My nephew was timing it with a stopwatch,,,

ALL in the black sillowette (spelling) of a Man from waist up, at 50 yards,,,

I wont waste bullets again like I did this weekend,,,

It is alot more fun to shoot 3 or 4 rounds burst, than it is just to hang on to it and shoot 30 or 40 at a target,,,

But I had a new toy and I wanted to play with it,,, So I did,,,

Love the Slide Stock,,, Would recommend it to anyone who loves to smell Gunpowder,,,

The smell of Gunpowder, It is a Sickness, I know, I have a bad case of it,,,

UPDATE,,,

I bought 150, 62 grain 5.56 bullets for my AR, these are Brass, fmj,,,

I tried shooting them Full Auto, but could not hold all of the shots in the MAN silluette, (spelling)

At 25 yards I could only get 22 of the 30 in the target, in the black,,,

No hangups, but the rifle kept raising up, and I could not keep it down,,,

Using the 3 to 5 shot burst, all were in the black,,,

A whole lot differant than the 55 grain weak azz steel casings,,,

I will be shooting these cartriges from now on,,,

Love them,,,
